No no no

First of all, stop using "therapy" as any part of this. Therapy in and of itself is helpful, self-searching, guided exploration into what makes a person who they are. Conversion Torture is the appropriate title for this disgusting practice being discussed. Anyone of any age who identifies as LGBTQIA+  - but especially our kids and teens - need loving protection. Not accusations, not torturous devices, not abandonment. Do NOT put this horrific practice of Conversion Torture into Virginia law.
